Medical Scientist Training Program (MD/PhD)

The University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine’s Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) provides a rich training environment that fosters the development of exceptional students to become both biomedical researchers and clinicians. We believe that such dually trained individuals will become the future intellectual leaders in medicine dedicated to improving health through research. Our program offers an integrated experience that takes advantage of outstanding basic and translational research opportunities, combined with the superb clinical training available at the Miller School and its partners, Jackson Memorial Hospital and the Miami VA Medical Center.

There are ten degree granting programs students can choose from for their PhD training, including traditional biomedical sciences, human genetics, cancer biology, epidemiology and biomedical engineering. In addition, Miami’s diverse population and access to Latin America and the Caribbean, and the backdrop of a vibrant city make the Miller School a unique place for MD/PhD training.
